12x16 Garage Shed Plan

This classic 12 x 16 garage shed offers an inexpensive solution to homeowners who need a convenient, safe, and solidly built storage shed for their cars, tools, and equipment. The shed delivers 192 square feet of floor space to park your vehicle and keep other heavy-duty items organized and protected from bad weather and elements. You can bring in lawn care machines, power tools, fertilizer bags, workbench, rakes, shovels, snow blowers, and virtually anything inside.

The shed features a 7″ ¼” tall, 8″ wide door that provides ample opening to allow you to drive your vehicle or tractor into place without scratching its sides. An equally wide sturdy ramp will enable you to wheel mowers and other items inside with little effort.

Thanks to its functional design, this outbuilding is also fit to serve as an art or music lessons studio, home office, workshop, or barbershop. It has a 2 feet 8 inches wide door for easy access, an averagely sized window that lets in enough natural light, and strategically positioned vents to ensure optimal airflow.

The siding walls are wooden and engineered to last. You can paint or stain it to your liking or match it with other outdoor structures.

A nice set of plans to give us an idea… A nice set of plans to give us an idea of what it costs to build on site vs buying a prefab structure, and the quality differences between them. This set of plans is "bomb proof" according to my local lumberyard guy. 2x6 joists on 12" centers, compared to 2x4s on 24" centers for the prefab models. A real foundation, not just some 4x4 skids. It looks like a major amount of work, but the result could be a really nice garden shed sturdy enough to house our commercial-grade chipper as well as the big mower.

The plans are missing a critical step The plans were missing a critical step, and my original message to Shedplans wasn't received. I received a message from them after posting my problem here, and they subsequently sent me the revised instructions. Very grateful for their follow-up. Now if lumber prices would just return to normal....
